Alcibiades Alcibiades

Men do not rest content with parrying the attacks of a superior, but often strike the first blow to prevent the attack being made.

Nor can you look at inaction from the same point of view as others, unless you are prepared to change your habits and make them like theirs.More Alcibiades Alcibiades quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
